Safer Recruitment


A one day, multi-agency course for managers and staff with a particular responsibility for recruiting paid and voluntary workers into positions which have contact with children and young people and / or their carers.

This course looks at how to undertake the recruitment process safely with regards to child protection. Please note that this is not intended to be a comprehensive workshop on staff recruitment and selection, but rather on how to make those processes safer.

This course is aimed at the wider children's workforce (non-education). For Education specific Safer Recruitment training visit the Leeds For Learning website.

Participants must have completed the Introduction to Working Together to Safeguard Children and Young People either through their own agencies or the LSCB and have a good understanding of safeguarding and their organisations policies and procedures before they can attend this training.

Wednesday 28th Feb - 09:00 - 16:30.
